I knew that Guru was very sick, but I was shocked to hear about his passing this morning. There are not too many rap groups that I feel shaped my love for hip-hop, but Guru and DJ Premier a.k.a. Gang Starr did just that! These kats were hip-hop and everyone knew and respected them for it. Their music was like comfort food for true fans like myself, and they always delivered with each album dropped. Guru made Premo's beats sound better, and Premo's production made Guru a better emcee. For that reason I was pretty upset when I heard that the group had ended their run together. I saw the writing on the wall, but I didn't want to see it happen. After the break-up, I still appreciated Guru's efforts, but something was definitely missing. In the back of my mind I alway hoped that Guru and Premo would put their differences behind them, and finally reconnect as Gang Starr. I guess that will never happen now, but Guru will still be missed. Another one of our hip-hop legends has left us too soon...

R.I.P. Guru!
